[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#537997: nrpe server should cleanup **environ at startup

If root does "/etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server restart" or
"invoke-rc.d nagios-nrpe-server restart", then nrpe runs
with a new environment inherited from root's interactive
shell. DISPLAY, LANG, PATH and all the others are inherited
by the plugins. This has unpredictable side effects.
I would suggest that nrpe cleans up the environment before
running the plugins.
